, california, illinois, massachusetts, and delaware, but the interesting part, and this is a first, jpmorgan agrees to pay out 4 billion dollars as relief directly to consumers. >> will consumers see any benefit from this deal or not? >> yes, about 4 billion dollars is being paid to consumers, about half of that is going towards actually reducing the principal on jpmorgan held loans where the value of the loan is bigger than the value of the house. some of that will go towards restructuring some mortgages to reduce the monthly payments. that's 2 billion dollars. and some will go towards subsidizing new mortgages for low and middle-income borrowers, and some may go to cleaning up properties in distressed areas. >> so is this the end of the legal action against jpmorgan? >> it may not be, because there is one criminal case underway so far in california. jpmorgan is agreeing to cooperate with authorities in the criminal case against it, and unlike prior deals that we have seen this one does not give jpmorgan immunity to criminal prosecution. >> ali velshi great to see you. thank you. >> my plea
